I created multiple signatures for one Gmail account. Now depending on the context I would like to select a different email signature manually when composing an email.  I created 3 different signatures for one mail account. In mail preferences, I set “choose signature” to "None”. for that mail account.

If I now compose a new mail, I don’t see the signature drop-down in the from line. 

New Mail to without signature drop down

How could I fix that?

  • what happens if you select one of those signatures rather than "none." Does it give you the choice then? – Steve Chambers Dec 13 '19 at 12:29
  • @SteveChambers, then only the selected signature is added to the mail, but there is still no dropdown. – Vadimo Dec 13 '19 at 12:37
  • @Vadimo: Have you been through this for your resolution ? -> discussions.apple.com/thread/7793425 – Udhy Dec 13 '19 at 12:43
  • @Udhy, Thing is I don't see even the drop-down. But I tried the suggestions anyway. no luck so far. – Vadimo Dec 14 '19 at 21:31

  2. Go to


  1. Move the two .plists to your desktop

Restart your computer, open the application, and test. If it works okay, delete the plists from the desktop.
